    Is it a bad time to buy an iPad or any tablet for that matter? I wanted one for August but most tablets such as the ipad mini/ipad and nexus 10 will most likely see an update within 2-3 months right?

    Just wait until the fall at Apple's event if you want an iPad.

    Apple has not refreshed any of its iOS device lineup in the first seven months of this year. I would look into the upgraded Nexus 7 tablet or wait for new iPad or iPad mini models to be released in (likely) the September - October timeframe.

    Regarding the Nexus 10: Yeah, it will probably be updated in the next few months.

    The Nexus 7 was just updated but expect a new iPad Retina/Mini and Nexus 10 by the end of this year.

    I'm in the UK and the nexus 7 will be available September...I'd really prefer getting something in August but I'll wait til September if I have to.

    The new ipad that is supposedly coming out in September, is it going to be a normal spec bump like all the others have been so far, or is it going to be something very different?
    So should I definitely hold out until end of September? When is apples even anyway, and the next google one where they might announce the nexus 10?

    Buy what you need when you need it. There is always something new coming up. You'll never buy one if you get caught up waiting for rumors to become reality.

    That's the way I see it.

    True, but I don't want to feel short-handed when paying full price for something that only has a life span of 2 months before being updated for round about the same price.
